    No New Wii For At Least A Year






    Have you noticed how all those rumours of a Wii 2 that were swirling around a few months back seem to have faded away recently? That’s probably because, according to Kotaku, there isn’t going to be one any time soon, and you can forget all about a Wii 2 until the end of next year at least, as Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has said not to expect a Wii 2 for a long, long time. Unless someone wants to go out and buy up a few million Wiis, that is, as according to Reggie, Nintendo wants to sell truckloads of the current version of the console before unleashing a new Wii on the market.
    “As we sit here today we’re saying the Wii has many, many more units to sell,” Fils-Aime told Kotaku. “After we’ve reach an installed base of 45 million here in the US, we can have a conversation about the next generation.”

    And with the news earlier this week that the Wii has sold around 30 million units in the US so far, that’s around 15 million Wiis that Reggie has in his garage that he’s got to get rid of before we get Wii 2.

    That explains alot but no one really wants the wii anymore so we probably wont get a wii 2 until like 2013.

    I think when the economy collapsed a couple years ago, it delayed the next generation of consoles from all companies. I suspect that Playstation Move and Microsoft Kinect were originally intended to be included as part of the next generation of consoles instead of tacked onto the current ones. But with the economy messed up, not many people are in a position to drop a lot of money to get a whole new console so release plans were delayed and Move and Kinect were patched into the current generation to hopefully extend their lifespans.
